  • What is therapeutic art?
    Therapeutic art is a creative practice that combines artistic expression with therapeutic techniques to promote emotional healing and self-discovery. It uses various art forms such as painting, drawing, collage, and sculpting as tools for exploring and processing emotions, thoughts, and experiences so that you can work through emotional barriers and confidently live the life you were meant to experience.
  • I'm not artistic. Will this still benefit me?
    Absolutely! Therapeutic art is about the process rather than the end result. You don't need any prior artistic experience or skill to participate. My sessions are inclusive and accessible to individuals of all levels, and the emphasis is on using art as a tool for personal reflection, growth, and healing.
  • Is therapeutic art right for me?
    Therapeutic art can benefit anyone experiencing emotional barriers, stress, anxiety, trauma, or seeking personal growth. It provides a safe and non-judgmental space for self-expression and reflection, guiding you through self-awareness, empowerment, and resilience.
  • I'm a little nervous. What can I expect from a therapeutic art session with you?
    It's completely normal to feel nervous before starting something new, especially when it involves exploring emotions and creativity. With every client, I create sessions specific to their needs and goals. I understand the courage it takes to invest in yourself and be open to vulnerability, because that is what has brought me to where I am today and I want to show you how you can do the same for yourself. I'm proud to create a supportive and nurturing environment where you can feel comfortable expressing yourself without judgment. I encourage you to approach the experience with an open mind and willingness to explore so that we can work together to break free from any emotional barriers that may have been holding you back from reaching your desired life.
  • What is mindfulness?
    Mindfulness is the practice of being present and fully engaged in the current moment without judgment. It involves cultivating awareness of one's thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surroundings, promoting a sense of calm, clarity, and acceptance.
  • How do you combine art and mindfulness into your sessions?
    The sessions I create, integrate art-making activities with mindfulness techniques, such as deep breathing, guided visualization, and sensory awareness exercises. By combining these practices, you can deepen you connection with your inner-self, tap into their creative intuition, and cultivate a greater sense of peace and self-trust.
  • Is this considered therapy?
    While my approach incorporates therapeutic principles and techniques, it's important to note that our sessions are not a substitute for professional therapy or counselling. However, many individuals find therapeutic art to be a valuable complement to their existing therapeutic journey or as a standalone practice for personal growth and self-care.
  • What sort of art will we be creating?
    The sessions offer a variety of creative activities, including painting, drawing, collage, journaling, and mixed media. The focus is not on artistic skill or perfection but on the process of self-expression and exploration. You'll have the freedom to experiment with different mediums and techniques that resonate with you.
  • What is the difference between therapeutic art and art therapy?
    Therapeutic art and art therapy share similarities but also have distinct approaches and purposes. Therapeutic art is a broader term that encompasses any creative activity used for personal growth, self-expression, and emotional healing. It often focuses on the process of creating art rather than the final product and may not always involve a licensed therapist. On the other hand, art therapy is a specific form of psychotherapy led by a trained and licensed art therapist. It involves using art-making processes and materials within a therapeutic relationship to address psychological challenges, promote self-awareness, and facilitate healing. Art therapists are trained to interpret the symbolic meanings behind artwork and use it as a tool for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment within a clinical setting.
